According to the National Motorists Association, Ann Arbor ranks #6 nationally in speed traps

Detroit and the 'burbs are #1, Tree City is #6 nationally. Is anyone surprised? From the Detroit News:

The National Motorists Association says Metro Detroit had the most speed traps in the United States in 2007, based on field studies and the number of complaints the Wisconsin-based organization gets. Ann Arbor also finished in the top 10:
1. Detroit suburbs
2. Colorado Springs, Colo.
3. Houston
4. Orlando, Fla.
5. Nashville, Tenn.
6. Ann Arbor
7. Albuquerque, N.M.
8. Washington, D.C.
9. Denver
10. Virginia Beach, Va.

that only shows how DESPERATE the State of Michigan is. with record foreclosures, people losing their jobs, and having to move into homeless shelters, Let the privilged police just add more stress the citizens when they can't even go to the grocery store to buy food, or pay their normal bills.

I enjoyed the hilarity in the article that accompanied this graphic by the Livonia chief of police saying of course traffic stops aren't used to raise revenue, simply to keep people safe from accidents.
